Plastics industry to witness growth: The current consumption of plastics in the country is 10 million tonnes and is expected to touch 20 million tonnes in the next five years. Gujarat will witness the development of futuristic plastic parks at Dahej and Sanand. This will empower employment opportunities since technical man power is predominant in Gujarat. The total numbers of plastics units are more than 10,000 in the state, out of which 40% are recycled units.

According to Raju Desai, Chairman of Plastivision India 2013, the petrochemical policy of the government of Gujarat is positive for the manufacturers. “However our plea to the government is to provide subsidy for the recycling Industry like TUF for textile industry, since it is the recycling industry that helps control the pollution in the environment,” he said. Plastivision India 2013 is India’s premier industry trade fair organized by All India Plastics Manufacturers Association (AIPMA). The exhibition is going to be held in December 2013 at Mumbai. Over 1500 exhibitors from 30 countries will participate in the fair.
